First assistance cat flying!

First assistance cat flying!
In Australia, not all assistance animals are dogs. Assistance Cat Peppy from the Assistance Paws Australia team, became the first non-canine Assistance Animal to fly in the cabin with his human this year (2023).


Australians with disabilities may take their assistance animals wherever they go – but Airline Travel requires individual application and approval with each airline to show that the animal is safe to fly.


Peppy sailed through his application process with flying colours!
